The Asia Pacific market for Insulin is expected to reach USD 15.04 billion by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Growing regional prevalence of diabetes, increasing market penetration rates of modern insulin products in emerging markets such as India and China is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, patent expiration of key products such as Lantus is expected to trigger the manufacturing of biosimilars from local manufacturers such as Biocon.
Long acting analog dominated the overall market in terms of revenue share in 2013, with revenue estimated at USD 2,051.9 million. High prices coupled with relatively higher efficacies exhibited by these products account for its large share. Rapid acting analogs followed the long acting segment in 2013 accounting for a revenue share of over 25.0% on account of their high market penetration rates in developed markets such as Australia and Japan.
